The hotel facilities are top notch. Premises is impeccably clean. Staffs are very helpful, trained and well groomed. The internet is super fast and there is a wide variety of menu.. From African to Continental dishes. African Sun Amber Residence can be considered as one of the best in Lagos. I certainly will visit again. Michelle

My flight back to the US was cancelled until the next day, the airline put me up at this hotel. The room was on the second floor, it was up a couple of flights of stairs, through a door and there is no elevator. The room is nicely appointed, the shower is very large. The shower configuration is a bit...

My colleagues and I stayed here for 4 nights while on business in Lagos. We arrived in the night and were impressed with the lovely, well lit and beautiful exterior once the gates were rolled open and our car drove in. Located in a quiet, hidden section of GRA Ikeja, this hotel is a perfect choice for the discerning traveller...

I ran a 2 day workshop here. The conference facilities are good enough. Actually everything about this hotel is good enough. Nothing to complain about - nothing to rave about. But having said that I would be very comfortable coming here again. The staff are great.

My company book this hotel for me when passing through Lagos. It is conveniently located within 15 mins of the international and domestic airports but as the Lagos traffic gets busier in the evening this can easily become an hour, not the hotels fault of course but it helps to be aware. Clean, spacious en-suite rooms throughout, some larger than...

Great environment with style, a little more touch to room accessories, bathrobes, slippers, hairdryer, shaving socket, would place the hotel in the league it wants to belong. If you are around with your family, be ready to pay $100+ for a baby bed -_-.

“The location is very quiet to begin with but a room in the back of the residence is even quieter as it is away from the car park and reception in the front. There is no elevator but the building is only 2 floors high.”
